Kids Life Coach Academy
I have been speaking to a lovely mom today who feels she has failed her daughter. This wasn’t deliberate or through neglect....she had just faced lots of trauma herself and felt unsupported.
She said one of the hardest things for her was feeling judged and being told repeatedly she was a “bad mom”.
Be mindful of judging those that you perceive to be “bad” parents. There is always a backend story....that you don’t know....as a Kids Life Coach!
As a Secret Parent I have seen how hard it can be for biological parents. Wowzer!!! Sometimes life can throw curve balls to families that knock them back dramatically.
In my experience coaching children for over two decades, the one thing that conquers all of this....
Is when parents find unconditional love grounded in compassion.
So stop judging the parents of the children that you coach and just try to put yourself in their shoes....empathy can take you a long way. Parents don't need judgement, they need compassion, care, acceptance. Many are doing their best and your job as a world-class Kids Life Coach is to be a Secret Parent to their child. Supporting them in their parenting journey. Not by replacing their role, but by supplementing it.
Children who are abandoned, abused or neglected....usually (though not always) have parents who experienced the same....this is a cycle that can be broken. You can break it. Not by coaching the parent to be a 'better parent' but by staying in your lane and equipping their child to navigate life with confidence despite their circumstances.
When healing happens and love is put at the centre of it all, you will see remarkable results in your clients.
Instead of judging, be the incubator and safe holding space to the inner child of that parent who is struggling (don't confuse this with parent coaching!) and watch the miracles of a rebuilt family life unfold....
